As I mentioned earlier, I’m working on a big project to put all my old home video tapes on DVD. I have, at last count, 162 tapes to watch and catalog. On the 145th tape, my trusty old Magnavox VCR I’ve had since high school grabbed a tape, shredded a portion of it, wouldn’t eject, […]
Well, officially anyway… Evan has come up with a variation on an Army-crawl that can move him from place to place, though not very efficiently. Laying on his belly, he pulls himself forward in two inch increments with his left elbow and right hand, while his feet flail away as if he were swimming. I […]
I knew it would only be a matter of time before a product or company would upset me, forcing me to write about the experience here. I plan to write about things I recommend as well, so fair is fair. Three months ago I tried to sign up online for web hosting with Rosehosting.com. A […]

So that’s what Open Source software is about… what a great feeling! After a little bit of research, I modified Lazy Gallery to support thumbnail caching and to allow it to be included on a WordPress page (which fixes the problem with the tabs, by the way). This was a fairly rewarding exercise, and I […]
Well, after auditioning a ton of photo album plugins for WordPress, I decided simple was best. I set up “Lazy Gallery” from http://www.lazyboy.dk. It doesn’t do too much, but it does what I want it to and isn’t crowded with all the extra links for ratings, comments, etc. Those things are great, but I’m going […]
Ok, here we go with a new website! There’s not really anything here just yet, but I’ll add stuff soon. This new site is going to be weblog-based, so hopefully I’ll keep at it!
